During Zoo Lights at Denver Zoo by moving my camera intentionally I was able to create a swirl of lights that appear as if they are swimming in the night sky.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY ZOO TIPS
Baby animals- many zoos have a special viewing of baby animals that is not intrusive to their well-being yet allows people to see them as they would not be able to do so otherwise.
Make sure you have some money with you for taking pictures. Currency placed next to smaller creatures helps put their size in scale.
Practice with your pets because they are always around.
Get to know your camera’s setting, experiment with them.
Before you throw away a picture check to be sure within it, if cropped, a picture exist.
Make back up copies of your photography.
A backyard is a great place to look for pictures.
Having more than one camera helps
Pay close attention to your surroundings.Take pictures often!
Take your camera everywhere you go.
Weather conditions play a big part if an animal is more active or not, depending on the animal, such as polar bears.Play around with different angles such as this a picture I took of an iris in our yard.
